I really enjoyed it. Even if it was basically a simple love story, it was somehow different, a film to think about. I'm normally not a big fan of road movies, but this one somehow got me under its spell. The scenery was very special, I felt that the film was shot in real locations, in places that I haven't seen before.
The film had many surrealistic elements, and sometimes it wasn't clear for me, how the story would develop, but I suppose it was meant to be so and it made me more curious, how it would go on. The main characters were somewhat indifferent in the beginning, but I got to like them in the course of the story. It was romantic but not cheesy. I guess it made an impact on me, otherwise I wouldn't probably be commenting on it.
And, I almost forgot, the soundtrack is great!
